Please see my index post over at my dreamwidth fic journal for an index of stories by fandom, or use the tags here. (The index post is now too large to crosspost from Dreamwidth.)

I have written stories in the following fandoms: Few Options, The Kill Point, Supernatural, Stargate: Atlantis, Sons of Anarchy, Eagle of the Ninth and other works by Rosemary Sutcliff, Haven, Firefly, Tolkien, Dark Angel, Miracles, The Magic of Ordinary Days, Jericho and Watership Down.

I generally add tags only for characters who play a significant role in a story, and not for characters who only make a cameo appearance and don't contribute significantly to advancing the plot. Where there are a large number of charcters who each have small but fairly critical roles in advancing the plot, I use the ensemble cast/secondary characters tag.

While everything I post is "read at own risk", I do aim to warn for the major categories of physical violence, sexual violence and major character death, and indicate that no warnings are necessary if none of these apply. (This is broadly in line with AO3's system of warnings; I'd also warn for underage, but I don't think I've ever written any.) Sometimes I forget to include warnings, so please let me know if you think a warning should be included. Ratings are based on typical British values for what is appropriate for each age; this means I'm more likely to rate high for violence than for sexual content or language.

Fic: Farscape - His Sister's Legacy - Adult

tanaquific
Title: His Sister's Legacy
Fandom: Farscape
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 65,305 words

Summary: A "mundane AU" inspired by the "Unconventional Courtship" challenge.

Inheriting half of his late sister’s company means John Crichton is now Aeryn Sun’s business partner – to their mutual dismay!

Working together to keep Moya Enterprises out of the hands of a rival corporation run by Herr Skorpinski, they are forced to confront their growing attraction. Then John discovers that Aeryn promised his sister that she’d do anything—anything at all—to keep the company hers—and that there's a lot else she hasn't told him.

John doesn’t want a relationship based on cold-hearted calculation or half-truths. But can he trust that Aeryn's feelings for him are real?

Disclaimer: This story is a transformative work based on the Jim Henson Company/Nine Network/Hallmark Entertainment/A&E series Farscape. It was written for entertainment only; the author does not profit from it.
Author's Notes: The story is set during the same timeframe as canon i.e. it begins in 1999. However, to allow for the backstories I've developed for John and Aeryn in this alternate universe, both have been aged up by about ten years from their ages in canon and are now both around 40. Thanks to scribblesinink for the cheerleading, brainstorming and beta services.

This story is too long to post easily on LJ without dividing it into awkwardly broken parts. It has been posted on AO3 and Dreamwidth, so please follow the links to read it at one of those places.
